The Magic of Plants, Wednesday, Per 3

Karla might live in Glacia, but she still kept tabs on Earth. So she was more than a little aggravated with politics when she arrived in Fandom for class today. They were playing dangerous games and they weren't even playing them well and that just offended Karla right down to her bones. She was half-tempted to March to DC after class was over and show them what a real ruler looked like.

"So, everything is kind of terrible today," Karla declared. "And while it was tempting to show you all how to make alcohol out of plants, I'm supposed to be some kind of role model or something. So instead, we're going to watch a very serious movie about how useful plants can be and why you should take care of them."

While snacking on roasted piƱas, or agave hearts, that just happened to come with an explanation of how to make mezcal, on the off-chance that was helpful to anybody.

Summer was always totally all about movie days, but somehow, a movie day instead of potentially making alcohol out of plants seemed like a little bit of a let-down. A little bit. She was ultimately fine with movies and not getting plant juice on her clothes today.

Shiemi watched the movie, slightly distracted.

(Not so distracted that she didn't wonder what a Lorax was, though.)

"I liked it," Summer said. "It was cute."

A+ top-tier film critic over here, guys.

Uurrrggghhh....

"It was just kind of sweet," Summer shrugged. "I liked how he went through all that because he waneed to impress that girl," because of course she would, "and ended up learning how plants are important and stuff. Cute. Twelve year old me would have loved it."

"It's a good message," Summer reasoned, "but kinda cheesy. Like, I don't think. I'd ever bother watching it on my own."

Or at least, not that she'd admit to, shut uo.

"I mean," Summer shrugged, "there's nothing new to learn there. Like any post-industrial society doesn't already know, deep down, that deforestation and the destruction of nature is a bad thing already? It's just that in a post-industrial society, people are really good at ignoring things, pushing it aside, and doing what they know is bad anyway because the benefit outweighs the idealistic idea of just leaving nature alone. We're incredibly destructive by nature, so the attempts to moralize on the idea of preservation is really nothing new. It might leave an impression on younger mind, but most people who could do anything about it are already too jaded to care."

"Sensei? Ano..." Shiemi had a question. and some agave. "This plant? Uhm. A-ag... Ajy..."
greenexorcist: (Nii)

"Agave?" Shiemi tried to repeat that. Did she get it right?

"Ano. Is this the same as a Century plant? I... I've only seen drawings, but it looks similar."

And Nii-chan? He wasn't in her hair. "Eh! Nii-chan?!" At least not anymore. He was in the air jumping for the teacher. Hopefully it was okay?

greenexorcist: (Nii says hi)

Re: Talk to Karla

[personal profile] greenexorcist 2017-07-29 03:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Then Sensei would most definitely have experience listening to a child's excited babbling conversation style! Though probably she was not used to it coming from a demon plant creature.

"Nii! NiiIII nii. Niiiii nii, nii nii..."

Nii-chan was communicating rapidly to the 'big sister', gleefully bouncing as if she was Shiemi. Since he was a baby greenman as well as a demon, though, any possible telepathic understanding was likely coming across more more as impressions and concepts than actual words, but it was all about how interesting the movie was and about a book that Shiemi had found with all the fun plant stories and their last exorcist adventure with the house spirits that had become evil and tried to eat the student renting the house and how he'd learned a new whip technique and and...

Her question momentarily forgotten, Shiemi was tilting her head and smiling like she was a mom about to burst with happiness and pride. "He really likes you. He's friendly and I've seen him tease people, but he usually only treats me like this."

Today's class was... unexpected. Not that it was Lucille's place to judge the teacher, but she could do it as silently as possible. She always had a feeling that Karla noticed such things.

This was one of the negative aspects of working for Karla.

"Oh, no. Just lost in thoughts." Lucille assured her. Which was true. She didn't actually want to say anything.

"I find I still have to get used to movies." That wasn't entirely untrue. So far she had disliked most movies.
crimson_sister: (curious)

"I am more used to reading a story and letting my imagination create the images," Lucille replied, avoiding the subject of silliness or pointless stories.

"Thank you." She took the cup out of the air, worried that she would fumble.

crimson_sister: (serious)

"I prefer them to be passionate," Lucille said, taking a small sip. "When people dare to express emotions that others may fear."
crimson_sister: (smile 2)

Now Lucille almost smiled. "Yes. I hear you know these kinds of novels too."

Perhaps if Lucille had the option of becoming a Black Widow she would be able to make use of her interests in a constructive way.

"Required reading?" Now she smiled.

I can just IMAGINE the phone calls between Momo and Karla :)

Karla: I wouldn't waste poison or craft on him. Straight up blades. Get me a portal.
Momo: And cause an international incident?
Karla: HE is an international incident!
